When leaders fail the integrity test, they fail at leadership


Each week this summer I’m introducing a blog theme that connects popular and important posts from recent years. Each theme offers a number of perspectives on a perennial challenge of school leadership.

This week’s topic is “integrity.”

Integrity is, in my view, the most important personal quality for those who lead school communities. Simply put, it means that leaders are honest and keep their word even when it would be easy or advantageous not to do so.

I encourage you to scroll through articles in this thread to find those that match your interests.

In addition, I encourage you to take a closer look at these essays:

“Choose integrity over expediency”

“Creating school cultures with high levels of interpersonal accountability”

“When principals and teacher leaders speak their truths”
